May-Adventure note book

Hello friends

I hope you are all good...

Today I'm sharing an Eileen Hull Sizzix die notebook
I started by covering it in lots of layers of book text glued down with collage medium,
when completely dry I added a layer of gesso.
I then added layers of distress oxides, distress paints and some Deco art media paint in Quinacridone, which gives a really rich vibrant rust colour.
I added some stencilling using Tim Holtz (THS 020) and stamped using one of Tims background stamps.
The centre is some vintage text from an old book  
page, framed with a frame and a star from Idea-ology, I typed the 'notes' using my old vintage typewriter.
To finish I added some pages to the inside and an old key from my stash
The numbers are from an old number stamp I have.

As always feel free to leave a comment as its great to know you popped by...
Have a great week

May- journal- little girl

Hello friends 

I hope you are all good..
Today I'm sharing with you some journal pages create in my mini journal.
I started by adding layers of music to the pages, sticking them down with collage medium.
I then added a layer of Dina Wakley gesso, when it was dry I added more through a tim Holtz stencil ( TMS 102)
When it was dried added a layer of colour using distress oxides in tea dye and ground expresso, I the wiped off the excess and then built up further layers using distress crayons.
I then added some sewing into the page then added some stamping into the background using ( tim Holtz CMS364 - mini media marks)
I then added a base board photo (Idea-ology) and the words are from clippings 
I had some printed some gel plate prints so I used a scallop punch to cut into them and added them to the pages.  The added journal page is also from idea-ology.... heres what it looks like underneath...
The numbers were stamped from an old vintage stamp from my stash.

I hope you like them, please feel free to leave a comment I really do appreciate you passing by.
Have a lovely week

best wishes
